If you venture down to Old Street in London in the not-so-distance future you may notice a well-known high street store there that isn’t particularly old. 189 to 197 Old Street is the new home for the latest Argos, which is open on weekdays from 9am to 8pm as well as 9am to 6:30pm on Saturdays and 11am to 5pm Sundays and bank holidays.
However this new Argos isn’t just like any other regular Argos. The new Argos in Old Street is the first of Argos’ new digital concept stores, and could possibly be the first of many more to come throughout the UK over the coming years.
Argos Old Street has been specially selected as one of the first in the country to undergo the transformation to a new digital concept store, which is jam packed with the latest in technology. This technology is said to offer customers a totally unique and efficient shopping experience, with a faster, easier and a much more seamless order process than the other stores in the country – an experience quite like no other.
In order to being using the facilities at Argos in Old Street you don’t even have to go there. You can now order and prepay for your goods online at argos.co.uk and use the FastTrack collection process when you get to the store, where your order will be out on a shelf and awaiting your collection which means that you can literally be in and out of the Argos store within a few minutes. Could this be the revolutionary hybrid of high street and online shopping?
